Our Story. Why This is Happening!

Three years ago, Xan was living and working in Spain. Being a keen sportsman, he was regularly looking to play tennis at the local tennis club. He struck up a relationship with the club who would regularly call him to arrange matches for him with visitors. Thanks to the club’s initiative, Xan managed to satisfy his need to play regularly and the club’s courts and facilities were used a lot more.

The club also generated more revenue and the regular activity encouraged Xan’s playing partners to play more and seek out more members and visitors to play against. At a time when a couple of dating apps had really taken off, Xan thought it would be brilliant if there was an App out there that solved this problem without the club having to get so involved. After extensive research, Xan found there was an opportunity and decided to develop Sportside for the sports player, enthusiast, coach, club and marketeer.

An opportunity to found the first global local sports club.
